Performance Tech Motorsports has one new driver named to its Rolex 24 at Daytona lineup, with Canadian James Vance set to make both his race and TUDOR United SportsCar Championship debut in the No. 38 Oreca FLM09 Prototype Challenge entry.

“Last year I told my driver coach that I would be in the 24-hour next year,” Vance said. “Now it’s all happening.

“I’m so excited to be able to do this and be with Performance Tech. It’s unreal! Everyone says race day is so crazy and I can’t wait to experience it for myself.”

He raced last year in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge ST class with Compass360 Racing in one of Karl Thomson’s Honda Civic Sis. He tested for Rebel Rock Racing in one of its Porsche Caymans this weekend.

Vance is the third driver expected for the lineup, along with James French and Jerome Mee who tested for the team at this past weekend’s Roar Before the Rolex 24 test.

At least one and potentially two more drivers are possible for this car, which finished third in the PC class in the 2014 Rolex 24.
